TDK has added an EtherCAT interface option to all models in its GENESYS+ series of 1U programmable DC power supplies. 

EtherCAT is an industry standard version of Ethernet for control automation technology. It offers more functional safety, flexibility, ease of use, lower cost and faster response times. The interface option can be used to remotely program, measure and check status of the power supply over an EtherCAT network.

The addition of EtherCAT means there are now seven operating modes, from LAN, RS-232/RS-485, USB, Remote Isolated Analogue and ModBUS-TCP to the front panel local interfaces. During control through the Remote Isolated Analogue or front panel, the GENESYS+ can still be remotely monitored through the EtherCAT interface.

One of the advantages of EtherCAT is that it can be programmed using XML. An XML ESI (EtherCAT Slave Information) file can be downloaded from the application installer. Connection is made through two shielded Ethernet RJ-45 connectors on the rear panel. Software drivers are provided in the software package.
